As part of the Phoenix Metropolitan area, Scottsdale is part of the Southwest’s largest destination for visual art. Not surprisingly, there are hundreds of galleries in the area. Here are some of our favorite art galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona.
When it comes to Southwestern art, Native American pottery is often under appreciated. Gallery owner Charles King has curated a number of ceramic pieces, from traditional to contemporary, that move beyond the Southwestern clichés that have prevented some incredible pieces from getting the exposure they deserve.
Lisa Sette Gallery
While Lisa Sette recently moved to a re-imagined midcentury building in Phoenix, it’s been a Scottsdale favorite for years. Many of the gallery’s pieces center on political or social commentary and are perfectly set against the minimalist backdrop of the gallery. Expect to see pieces from the likes of James Turrell and Mayme Kratz.
Western and Native American Art abound at Trailside Gallery. With a specialization in the depiction of wildlife, landscapes, and Old West tableaux painted by Cowboy Artists of America, Trailside has it all.
This gallery and its sister galleries in Santa Fe and Venice, California, have a plethora of contemporary art from painters, sculptors, and photography. Featured artists include Travis Constance, Ed Mell, and Native American Fritz Scholder.
What’s the best way to enjoy the galleries in Scottsdale? How about owning a nearby home that’s a work of art itself? Located just minutes away from some of the best art galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona, the aptly-named Hawk’s Nest estate perches on Black Mountain with stunning, 360-degree valley and city light views. Hawk’s Nest features masterpieces that stand on their own, including refined details like marble fireplaces, “broken” quartzite stone flooring, and custom faux finishes create contemporary art you can live in. Buy your own art at the galleries in Scottsdale, or negotiate with the home’s seller to keep the incredible design pieces already in the home (available on a separate bill of sale). Either way, enjoy the chefs kitchen, luxurious master suite, expansive entertainment area, and cascading outdoor terraces as a gorgeous gem in the desert, or simply on its own merit.
